Hi everybody. We returned last night from our short trip to Sparta. We attended the christening of my niece’s son and we had a great time.

We shall probably be leaving again soon on vacation. Until then I may add some posts I prepared before leaving and hope to visit each one of you soon.

I need a cup of coffee right now. Our favourite coffee here in Greece and Cyprus is, of course, our Greek coffee. For those of you who do not know how to make Greek Coffee, see how to make some, here. If you are offered Greek coffee do not forget to say Εις Υγείαν (Is Igian) wishing them “good health”.

I am submitting this photograph to Jugalbandi, created by Jai and Bee, for their monthly event “Click” having as theme Coffee and Tea.

    that you, dear ivy. it was fascinating to read how you use various brikis depending on how much coffee you’d like to make.

  2. Ivy says:

    Hi Bee. Thanks a lot for reading the link.

  3. Ben says:

    OOOOh Greek coffee. I think I am going to have a Metrios, I like it sweet, but not too sweet :)

    Have a great time on your vacation!

    That’s a beautiful photo Ivy!!!

    Am I the only one having problems to download your blog page? Anybody else told you so?

    Congratulations on your 1st place on Great Cooks!!! You are up there, girl 😀

    Welcome back Ivy! I’d like my Elliniko metrio, parakalo and I love the cup and copper briki.

  6. Ivy says:

    Thank God you all like metrios. So do I. So I’ll just make a big briki for all of us.

    Nuria, it’s the first time someone tells me this and thanks for letting me know. I think I have added toooooo many widgets and shall start removing them.

    Before doing this I would like to know if others have similar problems, so please let me know.

    Εις Υγείαν Ivy!
    I’m glad Nuria brought up how long your blog page takes to load. I’ve had to visit less frequently than I’d like because my computer has so much trouble loading your page. That’s great you’re going to fix the problem – thank you!!!
    Hope you have a wonderful vacation and καλό ταξίδι!

  8. Ivy says:

    Thanks Laurie. Now that you have confirmed this as well, I shall have to remove a few things. Thanks for telling me.

  9. Jeena says:

    Greek coffe sounds lovely and I love the jug you serve it in. :-)

  10. Bellini Valli says:

    Can you believe that I just don’t drink coffee or tea..but if I came to visit sis you might convince me to try a “cuppa”

  11. Peter G says:

    Nice to see you again! Metrio for me too…good luck with the “CLICK” entry.

  12. Cynthia says:

    I like that coffee pot a lot.

    Hope you have a great vacation!

  13. Ivy says:

    Good morning everybody. I am drinking my double cup of coffee, as I do every morning to wake up.

    Thanks Jeena.

    Val, I don’t drink tea either but I can’t live without coffee.

    Peter, I just enter the click event for the fun of it. It’s silly if I think that I can compete with all those talented photographers out there and you are one of them.

    Cynthia, Thank you very much.

  14. Aparna says:

    I can see that various countries have their own way of drinking coffee or tea and it makes for such wonderful variety.
    Don’t put your picture down because its quite nice. Most photographers learn to be what they are with practise.
    Btw, your page does take time to load. I also get a message saying that your “page is slow because a scrip is running”. I hope this helps.

  15. Ivy says:

    Hi Aparna and thanks for letting me know. Yesterday I removed a lot of widgets from the site but I don’t know if this problem still exists.

    I will appreciate it if anyone notices this problem again please let me know so I can look into this further.

  16. Passionate About Baking says:

    Hey there Ivy…I loved reading about the brikis…think I'd better get 2-4 coz even I prefer a BIG cuppa. Also will go for the M's…medium sugar! What a great piece of information & I think I could do with that yummy cuppa staring back at me! Great Click…
    “Stin Ygeia Sas" & have a great vacation! Come back soon coz you will be missed. xoxoxo Deeba

  17. Ivy says:

    What a sweet comment. Thanks Deeba, however, we have not made up our mind yet when and where we shall be going.

  18. Núria says:

    Ivy, it was my PC, which finally broke down! Nothing to worry, because today I’m entering from a laptop and there’s no problem!

    So sorry I upset you!

  19. Ivy says:

    Hi Nuria. It seems that there was a problem as others told me that as well after you left your message. I removed a few widgets and on one of them there was a script which caused the problem. Thanks for telling me about the problem.
